Vicodin and headaches

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin and headaches


Avatar f tn So why would a physician prescribe tramadol to try to get off the vicodin? I have cluster headaches since the surgery and now I think it will be twice as hard to try to discontinue either of those. Looking for some input.
Avatar n tn I currently suffer from daily headaches and anxiety. Emerging research suggests that anticonvulsants, SSRIs and other anti-depressants show some promise in the reduction of chronic headaches. Due to my desire to avoid exaserbating either permenently or temporarily my chronic tinnitus I a fearful of the anti-convulsant and SSRI drug classes.
545538 tn?1295992017 I also get headaches with these meds,I then visit my chiroprator 3 or 4 times and I am good for about 3 weeks to a month
1432912 tn?1309269918 Call your dr, they can safely give you vicodin for it. I am 6wks 3days and I suffer from them now and that is what I take. It they make you really nauseous then ask for some medicine for that as well.
Avatar m tn I developed both eye pain and headaches about four months after cataract surgery. I went to my eye doctor and he could not find anything wrong. I have gone to my GP and he has subscribed anti inflamatory meds and they have not worked and I could not tolerate them. I also had a CT Scan performed and everthing is normal as well as blood test were normal. But, I still have the pain and it is getting worse.
1041243 tn?1375230520 but in my personal experience, thats all that vicodin does, too. vicodin makes me violently ill and i found that ibuprofen, tylenol and asprin all worked better than the vicodin...but i talked to my doc first, which is what you should do.
Avatar f tn (I am on Hospice care) she told me I needed to take more vicodin! I want off this crap--can anyone tell me anything about these headaches? Is it usuall?
630344 tn?1280104983 If so does it get better or do you stay in pain for the majority of the pregnancy, I am having headaches that pretty much do not ever go away and my muscles never relax and I was given the ok to take Vicodin for the headaches occasionally, but I do not want to take Vicodin on a daily basis and I need some type of relief. I was getting some relief in the sauna, but I am obviously unable to do this any longer. I cannot take it on a daily basis and I need some type of relief.
Avatar f tn i am 78 yr old female who has severe arthritis, severe back pain, scoliosis, bulging discs and so much acute back pain i can not. walk wthout vicodin 10/325 every 4 hrs. i take 4 a day and have been on it for 10 years. i have had 10 or more steroid inj. into spine with some relief but the last two gave me terrible headaches, relieved by nothing. i had ct scans of head and sinuses, no problems there. my back pain is gone since last fri.
175688 tn?1297556647 Soma is a muscle relaxer and pretty strong it usually makes u very tired and sleepy and I found it worked better that valium Now I know alot of doctors will prescribe soma350 and Lortab at the same time and the two tend to work off of each other increasing the effects of both.
Avatar f tn I just finished week 2 of Sovaldi/Olysio and am having constant headaches. My family doc here in rural Alaska is afraid to give me anything like Vicodin or other pain meds that contain tylenol, she doesn't want to cause more liver damage. I told her I'd ask this forum what they are doing for headaches, any ideas for me? What are the rest of you doing? Thank You!
Avatar f tn Are bad headaches and fatigue part of vicodin withdrawls? When youre immuned to vicodin, tylenol dont help for a headache so what should i do?
Avatar n tn You will have rebound headaches if you try to stop taking it and they are worse than the original headaches. You need to get proper, non-habit forming medication for your condition. Why in the heck did your doctor prescribe Vicodin? Any headache specialist would never do that. I have suffered migraines for 15 years and was taught that in the very beginning. What type of headaches were you diagnosed with?
Avatar n tn Try taking 2 extra strength tylenol with the caffine. If this doesn't work then I would talk to your dr about it. My prescribed my vicodin to get rid of the bad ones other's wise you could end up in the ER like I have twice this pregnancy. I hope this if somewhat helpful.
Avatar m tn ve been clean from the drug for a month and a half now, and my PAWs symptoms are letting up a bit. My headaches seemed to be replaced by depression, which I'm not exactly sure whether to be happy about or not but I've gotten by on advil and excedrin when I do get a headache. However here's my problem... It seems like nobody actually takes Vicodin for killing pain.
Avatar f tn I was comparing side effects and apparently vicoprofen can cause heart attacks. I only had to take 2 vicodin a day and I have to take 3 vicoprofen. What are you guys doing for headaches joint pain etc... I have a job and a house to keep. I also take care of my 20 yr old autistic son who is so wonderful. When I have this terrible pain I can't get out of bed and I can't walk on my right leg. I am not thrilled about pain meds but if I am suffering I will take them.
Avatar n tn t need them anymore for pain, I am just taking them to be taking them. Well I stopped taking them three days ago. Legs hurt, arms and back are sore, headaches and I just started with diherria. I have been taking Aleve to help with the soreness but they don't seem to be working very well. How long will I be feeling like this.
210400 tn?1325380570 Aww...sorry you aren't feeling well...headaches and such at this point in time are just a nusiance. I do hope you feel better soon.
Avatar n tn on occasion my daughter gets up in the morning with a high blood sugar but has the shakes like she is having a low. She has been on some medications for shoulder pain (vicodin) and imitrix for headaches. Can these medications cause the highs and the shakes? Are there other reasons for having the shakes and highs? She is 30 years old and a diabetic since age 15.
Avatar f tn re drinking lots and lots of water and getting rest and do things that will help you to not be stressed like take a bath, put a washcloth over your head and lay down for 15 minutes or so and make sure to eat regularly and take your vitamins and talk with your doctor. I'm going through the same thing with headaches I had a migraine for 2 days that was almost debilitating. kaley cuoco some natural remedies for headaches during pregnancy.
Avatar f tn Your blood volume increases and causes headaches high blood pressure pulse and dizziness. Its normal ..there isn't much we can take but if its unbearable your doc will be able to help. I'm a chronic pain sufferer and Vicodin and related drugs are safe until before birth. If its needed ....there's a way to make you comfortable without hurting the little bean.
Avatar m tn went to her doctor yesterday (primary care) and they said she was having spasm or tremors. she takes vicodin for the last 8 yrs. for the pain. they gave her butalbital/apap/caffeine but it is not working. she said her teeth even hurt with this one. she has been suffering from this since monday 07/26/10 cant see her neu doctor untill monday. my question is could this be some type of infection?....and not related to her stroke?....or maybe some type of nerve problem?......
1539409 tn?1292867192 My wife has been experiencing extreme headaches, bout with nausea, feelings of high fever, and sometimes sensitive to bright lights. Her headaches travel from the front of her head to the rear. We went to our regular doctor who has tried everything, blood tests came back good. We went to the ER because of her headaches.Chest Xrays-Blood tests again, all good. Prognosis-Valium! The other night we spent it at the Urgent Care-Bloodtests, Head X-rays to look at sinuses.
620048 tn?1358018235 I know how overwhelming bad headaches can be; sending good thoughts your way and hopes for you finding the best way to lessen or get rid of your headaches.
Avatar f tn That being said, let me try and answer you as best I can. I assume you are taking generic Vicodin, which contains both hydrocodone and acetaminophen (Tylenol). The danger to your liver is not going to come from the hydro, it's going to come from the acetaminophen. How much are you taking a day, and what are the strength of the pills? The maximum dosage of acetaminophen for the body per day USED to be 4000 mgs, but it has been moved down to 3000 mgs.
Avatar f tn I had decompression surgery in 2009 but it didn't relieve the headaches all that much. I am now pregnant and the meds I was on before pregnancy (Topamax & Vicodin), of course I can't take now and Tylenol is not helping much at all. Just wondering if anyone else has been pregnant with chiari and how you got through the headaches. Also, were there any special precautions you had to take with the pregnancy?
1387175 tn?1326400997 I have very little or no effect from Lortab and Vicodin. Neither have helped my headaches or relieved pain from oral surgery. If meds are working then you should try something else. If you doc doesn't know how to rx meds, you should see someone else. Also, after years of abusing meds, your body's chemicals can be "off-balance" and may respond differently. This happened to me with a LOT of meds and now either they don't work at all or they make me extremely sick.
10882379 tn?1435465934 If so, what are you doing yo get rid of them? I rarely got headaches before being pregnant. I got an extremely painful one last night and woke up multiple times to use the bathroom and had a very tough time going back to sleep because of the pain. I thought that I would've been able to sleep off the pain and was surprised when I woke up and still had this headache! I still have it now but its not as severe as it was last night.
Avatar n tn My sister and I were also having headaches and vomiting. She says she is still waking up with mild headaches. Mine thank goodness have stopped. We never really found the cause of these. I would definatley call your doctor and tell him what is going on. Sorry your having a ruff time.
